    Unanswered: What are some good books on SQL query optimization and other advanced SQL topics?

    I graduated from college about three years ago and have been working as a programmer using MS SQL 2000 and even though I've learned a TON in these past three years I know there is tons more I can learn.

    Because my company uses Microsoft SQL Server 2000 I'd like to focus on that, but anything ANSI-SQL is perfectly fine.

    So... what are some good books on SQL query optimization and other advanced SQL topics?

    Thanks in advance...

    I know you are using 2000 but much of the Inside SQL Server 2005 series covers different aspects of optimization and will discuss solutions for both 2000 and 2005.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    ANSI SQL does not even recognize indexes, so you're not going to find a lot of books talking about optimizing ANSI SQL | @rudydotca
